As we prepare to sip on pumpkin spices, we're also preparing for hot creations to be sold out (like the PureThermal 3 and the HydroMoth) and new creations coming soon (like the Humble iCE!) Speaking of new, we have also expanded our thermal imaging and advanced camera accessories to be sold on our newest storefront: ISO Cameras.
(Put on your coziest sweater and read-on the latest of what's coming up on GroupGets)
The Return of the King: PureThermal 3
Continuing our successful line of thermal webcams, the PureThermal 3 (PT3) is the latest edition that, according to our Head of Hardware Engineering, Griffin Covert: "The motivation of the new design was primarily to address component shortages, but we took it as an opportunity to make a new form factor...We never saw much use of the optional RF shield pads on the PureThermal 2, so doing away with that left room for a detailed silkscreen and USB-C connector...This in combination with a custom jig, allows for more rapid flashing at the fab compared to DFU over USB."
The PT3 is a hackable thermal webcam for the FLIR Lepton (2.x - 3.x) LWIR camera core. It has the same basic functionality of the PureThermal 2 but with a few changes and additional features. Unlike the PT2, the PT3 does not have pads to install an RF shield and the Tag-Connect TC2030 programming connector is replaced by the Tag-Connect EC-10-IDC.
The PureThermal 3 is currently being bundled with the FLIR Lepton FS, and can be upgraded with a Lepton 3.5.
Humble iCE is a low cost FPGA development board based on Lattice iCE40UP5k and Raspberry Pi RP2040. Developed by the founder of Electronut Labs and Python Playground writer for No Starch Press, Mahesh Venkitachalam, will provide updates through the pre-launch page and his Twitter account.
HydroMoth is the latest product from the AudioMoth range and offers everything needed to start recording underwater sound for extended periods of time at depths of 30-60m. It is being sold with the AudioMoth Underwater Case as standard, with the option to add a waterproof magnetic key chain fob to make use of the magnetic reed switch.
With LoRa, Wifi and BLE, the L01 OEM Module is the only triple bearer MicroPython enabled micro controller on the market today – the perfect enterprise grade IoT platform for your connected Things. With the latest Espressif chipset the L01 offers a perfect combination of power, friendliness and flexibility. Create and connect your things everywhere. Fast.
Buying thermal imaging accessories has never been easier, especially quality gear from Teledyne FLIR. Though we will continue to carry all-things thermal imagining on GroupGets, ISO Cameras allows developers and researchers to have more access to the latest in FLIR updates and have a streamlined experience.
The Teledyne FLIR Boson 640 thermal camera line sets a new standard for size, weight, power, and performance. FLIR’s XIR™ expandable infrared video processing architecture gives Boson advanced image processing, video analytics, peripheral sensor drivers, and several industry-standard communication interfaces that make it easy to integrate while keeping power consumption low.
Available now on our thermal imaging headquarters, ISO Cameras.
